Oopsies. Dell’s Taiwan website recently listed a 19-inch monitor for the equivalent of about $15 for eight hours before being fixed. Naturally, orders flooded in left and right and when Dell refused to ship the monitors, people complained.
As a result of the complaints, the Consumer Protection Commission in Taiwan has ordered Dell to ship out almost 140,000 of the monitors at $15 apiece for the first monitor ordered along with discounted pricing on any additional monitors added to the same order.
Dell apologized and promised to offer “reasonable discounts” to those who ordered the incorrectly-priced monitors but the Taiwanese government is saying that “If Dell fails to respond to this directive properly and concretely, then the [Taiwan government] will consider seeking legal alternatives.”
